Former jazz percussionist James Mtume moved into soul and funk in the 1980s, and then changed gears again in the mid- and late ’80s. This was one of an album series Mtume called “sophisti-funk” LPs, with a denser, sparser sound than his previous works and devoid of string or horn support. Mtume managed to both get R&B chart hits like “P.O.P.” and also make some biting, satirical comments about materialism and commercialism.
